smoked rockfish

  1. caught a limit of good eatin' sized rockfish (striped bass) this weekend on the Chesapeake. Kept 2 whole for the smoker. I ended up just scaling and filleting them and brined them in 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup salt for about an hour. Got the ECB fired up and threw the fillets on with some lemon pepper and butter. Soaked a couple hickory chunks and kept the smoke going for about an hour and 15 minutes at 225*. Man oh man, it was to die for!

    sorry no Q-view. The family was too hungry. It didn't last long enough for pics.

  2. Glad to hear how that came out I"m going to try that this fall when I start to fish AI.

    Now you'll have to get back out on the lake to get more fish! Glad you had a successful fish smoke on the lil' ecb.

    We in Fla have alot of striped bass here not as popular as some of the other but still plentiful.
